Babylonstoren is one of the oldest Cape Dutch farms, dating back to 1692. It has a fruit and vegetable garden of beauty and diversity, unique accommodation, fine food and a sense of wellbeing. Our wines are produced in a state-of-the-art winery and are made to showcase the soils and climate where its grapes are grown. We have 88 hectares under vine and produce 13 different grape varieties with our highest vines – pinot noir and chardonnay – lying against Simonsberg at some 600 metres above sea level.
Our wines are best exemplified by the Babylonstoren logo, which consists of the pipe (representing the farmer), the flower (representing the garden) and the bird (representing nature). It is a combination of the very essence of Babylonstoren – keeping things simple and as true to the earth as possible. "It is this that we strive to achieve in our wine," says Charl Coetzee. "Truth to the area we are situated in on the slopes of Simonsberg, and simplicity by making elegant and balanced wines as natural as possible."
Wiston Estate has been owned and managed by the Goring family since 1743. Its 6,000 acres straddle the chalky slopes of the South Down.

The first vines of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier were planted in 2006. Her great passion is the backbone behind Wiston's award-winning English Sparkling Wines.
Winemaker Dermot Sugrue works together with the team and his unwavering commitment to purity and expressing terroir has led many to describe him as “the best winemaker in England.” Wiston Estate Winery has won “Winery of the Year” at the WineGB Awards in 2018 and 2020.

Established in 1896, Te Mata Estate remains family-owned, producing internationally recognised wines exclusively from its Hawke’s Bay vineyards.
Hawke’s Bay is a very special place for making wine. Its range of slopes, plains and climatic differences, coupled with low humidity and ample ultra-violet light, give winemakers a comprehensive toolkit to showcase their skills. Soils are young and derived from the gravels, silt and sands left behind as the three main rivers of Hawke’s Bay changed course over thousands of years. Every step in the production of their wines is undertaken by the winery itself, from grape growing and pruning through to winemaking and bottling. Over the last forty years Te Mata Estate has established an internationally-recognised array of red and white wines including Coleraine, Awatea, Bullnose Syrah, Elston Chardonnay, Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc and Zara Viognier.
Today, Te Mata Estate is recognized as one of New Zealand’s most prestigious wine producers, making nearly 40,000 cases a year of premium wine and exporting to over 42 countries.
The Seifried story began in 1973 when Austrian born Hermann Seifried and his New Zealand wife Agnes had a dream of making wines in New Zealand’s sunshine capital - Nelson. From very small and modest beginnings when Hermann and Agnes grafted the vines late into the night, to today when all three Seifried children have returned home to play their part in growing the family business. Seifried Estate is a company devoted to sustainable winegrowing and producing the very best Nelson has to offer.
Nelson is located at the top of New Zealand’s South Island. It is one of the country's top holiday destinations with three national parks, fabulous golden sand beaches, alpine lakes, and surrounded on three sides by mountains; its beauty is hard to beat. Combine this with over 2,400 hours of sunshine every year, the diverse coastlines and native bush, the colourful array of creative characters in the region, and this adds up to a beautiful place to call home.
The wine industry in Nelson is tiny by international standards, however Nelson’s success is often envied. Winemaker’s efforts with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir have shown that the region is capable of producing some of the finest wines in the world, gaining international recognition.

White Castle Vineyard was established in 2008 by husband and wife team Robb and Nicola Merchant. The vineyard was established following the purchase of a field adjacent to the family’s small holding, which was itself purchased in 1993. It was then Nicola started to dream about planting a vineyard. The first vines were planted in 2009 with further plantings in 2010 & 2019 taking the area to 2.25 ha now 7,000 vines. Training in viticulture was gained at Plumpton College East Sussex. The first harvest was in 2011 when White Castle gained Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) from Wine Standards, allowing its produce to be labelled Welsh Quality Wine.
The varieties now planted include Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Regent, Rondo, Seyval Blanc, Phoenix, and Siegerrebe. This allows White Castle to produce a mix of red, white, rose, sparkling wines and their renowned “1581” Fortified Wines; with 60% of sales through their Cellar Door. The grapes are handpicked and pressed on the same day at the Three Choirs winery in Newent. White Castle restored its Grade II* listed Croft Barn in 2015, which dates from the 16th Century.

A number of winemakers have followed Treaty Port’s lead; Lafite planted its first vineyard in Asia on a neighbouring plot, producing its first vintage in 2017. It has taken several years to work out the varietals and cultivation methods best suited to the climate and local taste. The full harrowing story can be read in “A Decent Bottle of Wine in China”, available on Amazon. Treaty Port wines are distributed in the UK through www.therealwineco.co.uk.

D.O. Rías Baixas is widely acknowledged as the heartland of Spain’s most fashionable white grape variety, Albariño. 95% of all grapes grown here are Albariño grapes. Nestled up in the remote north west corner of Spain by the side of the Atlantic Ocean, Rías Baixas is also famous for its lush green landscape, steep terraced vineyards and granite ‘pergolas’, not to mention the cornucopia of fresh fish hauled daily out of the ocean just a stone’s throw away!
This is an area which is a far cry from the Spain of popular imagination, and as such remains a relatively undiscovered region to all but a few “in the know”. Yet the wine emanating from this delightful corner of Spain is certainly gaining recognition worldwide for its refreshing peach, elderflower, citrus and tropical fruit aromas and silken palate.
